THE WRITING ON THE WALL - The End is Nigh

E-mail Print PDF

The near-future is almost upon us...

Abraham fought his enemies even when he was old.

So did the other patriarchs.

They fought with great conviction because they obeyed the Lord and He blessed them with victory.

Caleb was given the inheritance of Hebron and its mountain range, by God, for fully following Jehovah.

When we studied 2 Kings I was made deeply aware of the loss of both Israel and Judah, the cause of which was their own sin and refusal to get rid of evil ones in their midst. Instead, they adopted the evils God hates, thus rejecting His rule and will. I see this in our own day.

Solomon inherited his father’s kingdom and began as a great and wise king. But he adopted the ways of his pagan wives and lost both his wisdom and godly rule. And so God, eventually ended the rules of both Israel and Judah. They made His kingdoms a mockery and a place of evil.

In the days of Joshua war was fought hand-to-hand. They didn’t have the luxury of distant missile launches and technological warfare. Yet, when Israel obeyed God and were faithful, they were handed victory after victory. It is recorded that while the people fought hand to hand, it was God Who gave the victory, every time.

Sam Allberry the Master of Contradictory Statements

E-mail Print PDF

In February of this year (2017), Sam Allberry of “Living Out” (Should be called “Dying Out”) and assistant minister of St Mary’s Church Maidenhead, addressed the Anglican Synod, where he challenged the assembled clergy and lay people, by “outing” himself.  He boldly introduced himself as someone who, whilst not defining himself as gay, described himself as someone who had “sexual, romantic and deep emotional attractions towards people of the same sex ”-  but also as one who was “celibate” and upholding the Biblical definition that marriage was only between a man and a woman.

Like a terrorist coming into the church, with explosives attached to his body he demands being applauded, because he does not blow us all up. Moreover, he ask the church to accept not only him but a queue of other terrorists with “bombs of many shapes and sizes” strapped to them, but all promising not to detonate them.

You can hear his blasphemous spin in the two links below, which corrupts the gospel message of repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as a saviour from sin:

Sam came to Lansdowne Baptist Church, now simply called Lansdowne Church on the 18th and 19th March 2017. I had left this church in 2014, but went back to witness what was happening here.

Allberry’s visit could be seen as an equality and diversity training event, aimed at bringing the church up to speed with current thinking - to move the church incrementally and painlessly to accepting a nature, which was formerly considered abnormal and unnatural, to being normal and natural - to change an attitude or public perception towards a sexual proclivity that was previously considered deadly and deviant to one that has now become domesticated and respectable. (This error is replicated in the Nashville Statement Article 8 accesed 9 September 2017)

Sam Allberry is a master orator.  I do not know if he is intentionally subversive or whether he is being guided by some other hand; I am not even sure if he is who he says he is.

The Seed of error in Article 8 of the Nashville Statement

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Friends
I congratulate your Nashville Statement, but Article 8 does not quite match the other articles.

"Article 8

WE AFFIRM that people who experience sexual attraction for the same sex may live a rich and fruitful life pleasing to God through faith in Jesus Christ, as they, like all Christians, walk in purity of life.

WE DENY that sexual attraction for the same sex is part of the natural goodness of God's original creation, or that it puts a person outside the hope of the gospel." (Accessed 9 September 2017)

I speak as one who once treated homosexuals and written about their sexual demands.

I was also the first Christian to research AIDS as it was presented to a gullible public.

I would not accept that people whose minds are filled with sexual attractions for the same sex can lead “rich and fruitful lives... through faith... as they walk in purity of life.” Homosexuality
in particular, along with transgenderism, are not like most other sins, but become more entrenched and wicked with time. Their thoughts replace all other thoughts.

Indeed, this statement contradicts the “We deny” part below. (See 'Sam Allberry the Master of Contradictory Statements' and this method of attack on gospel truth.)

Scripture tells us that the sinful thought is equal in potency to the sinful act.

Thus to have sinful thoughts about same sex attraction is, to God, the same as acting it out.

I have counselled people over their sins for five decades and at no time would I accept that they can live fruitful or holy lives if they harbour sexually perverse thoughts. I have found through many sessions that these thoughts are all-embracing and take up most of the person’s thinking time. That makes it a prevalent sin that trumps any holy thoughts. Indeed, I cannot see them having genuinely holy thoughts. Their time is spent lusting in their hearts and minds, possibly also taking in pornographic images to bolster them. This is why God speaks of what they think and do as an abomination, anathema. And in Romans 1 we find homosexuality in particular to be an all-embracing pit of evil that affects all areas of life. When one lives out this sin it is anarchic in structure.

To walk in purity of life demands that we put to death ALL sinful thoughts. We may not succeed fully but it MUST be our aim and purpose in life. Purity means purity.

We all sin and all fail, but to allow that we can think evil thoughts about sex and yet live a pure life is not true. Homosexual thoughts take over all other thoughts, pushing aside all other thoughts. I have discovered this throughout my pastorship.

I would sincerely love to sign your statement but this Article prevents me from doing so.

This I find sad for we need a strong public statement of faith in the matter. I believe Article 8 can be salvaged with some change in the wording. Without such change I can see this
Article being used by homosexuals and heterosexual sinners as a breach in the otherwise strong arguments put forth.

Whenever I write about these subjects I make very sure I leave nothing to chance or to allow even the smallest of re-definitions. I have no doubt your team earnestly and biblically made a sound statement, but the seed of error is in Article 8.

May I urge you to consider my proposal for the sake of utter clarity and the strongest of biblical statements.

May the Lord bless your efforts.

The Fire of Satan

E-mail Print PDF

A fire truck arrives on the scene of a big fire that, if not controlled, threatens to consume the city. Much as London was destroyed in the great fire of 1666.

But, on arrival, a deranged small group of opposers stopped the truck, saying that the fire was okay and acceptable. So the truck turned around and left, the fire-fighters are suddenly also deranged.

The fire soon spread wider and consumed the city, as the dwellers and the small group applauded.

A ‘Final Solution’ is needed for those who follow Islam

E-mail Print PDF

The words ‘Final Solution’ are loaded with association, Nazi Germany’s policy of exterminating the Jewish people and its religion. However, in English the words ‘final solution’ also mean a complete answer to a problem. Katie Hopkins had every right to use them. (Independent, 26 May 2017)

A final solution is needed to the Islamic doctrinal driver that murdering and slaughtering of infidels and non-compliant Muslims is a ‘golden ticket’ to a seat at Mohammed’s table in heaven and other sensuous delights. (Culture Watch, 24 May 2017) 

My statement has nothing to with race, but a total rejection of a perverse, pagan, dark, satanic set of incoherent idolatrous beliefs that represses and destroys everything and every mind that is infected by it.

Mohammed was a murderer from the beginning; demanding submission by all to a false god and belief system he was inspired by Satan to deliver. History records it. The Koran and the Hadiths celebrate the narrative and followers of Islam rejoice when its doctrines are 'executed' across the world today.

True Strong and Stable leadership

It is urgent and imperative that political leaders in the UK, collectively, be strong and boldly declare, without apology, that Islam has no place in the UK and the rest of the world.

How can there be stability and safety anywhere when Islam is protected and honoured by the government and its institutions?

Islam is the antithesis of what people in the West value most: the liberty and freedom to live under the law of the land in security and peace and to choose who they want to govern them.

The politicians know the truth, but are too scared or entrapped in political correctness or some insane social liberalism dogma (psuedo-equality) to declare the truth. Islam has no place in the values and culture of the UK, unless it is to become an Islamic state and who wants to live there – not even Muslims!

The government must name Islam as being completely toxic to the mind, heart, body and soul of the follower and therefore is not accepted here. Anything else, and not even Theresa May will be able to deliver strong and stable leadership!
